its a trap its a trap its a trap 12K-14K then continue multi year bear market.
y tho?
Because it's next in the series of events I mapped out months ago including a drop below 6K followed by a bounce to 13k

I remember at 6K everyone was panic selling and calling 1K and I let you know that it was bouncing at least to 12K. Now that you have gotten this miraculous bounce and doubled your money with the perfect opportunity to sell, you demand ATH. You are too greedy.

To my shame I missed some time here. When I came back you were back too, being all bearish and annoying, so I ignored you for a bit and musta missed your 'series of events'. Would you link?

I hate hard drives...fickle, delicate beasts

No freaking kidding. HDDs are obsolete relics from the 20th century second millennium.

It's time to move on from moving-parts contraptions. glass-bulb technologies and other fragile inefficient garbage.

I've been using SSDs since the days of IDE (PATA) and have never had an SSD fail.

I originally got into SSDs for performance (used HDDs in RAID-0 and RAID-5 before that), backing up to HDDs. It was the HDDs that actually failed. I was mainly seeking fast writes and reads. The extremely lower failure rate of SSDs was just a bonus.

What's the longest time you have used an SSD for? I thought they were supposed to wear out faster than HDDs.

I've got a first gen Corsair Force F115 here that was the boot drive on my first Nehalem rig, its firmware went away about a year ago.

It is a brick.

(snip)

So tell us darling - how do we know the bear market is over?

If we hit 20k it definitely is  Grin

Yeah that’s not particularly helpful for those who want to enter before then...

Can a series of movements be taken as a more reliable sign? As in "down to 9.8k-9.9k, up again to 12.2k and slowly climbing 100$ a day for a week"? Or some hydraulic quantitative measure (using Toxic's suggestive idea of pools that fill up)?

Maybe it's too simplistic to try and define a complex situation by a simple level to be reached, if the path is not also taken into account.


If we close above 12.2k on a daily base... thats your sign...

If...

What more do you need than bitcoin at $11111? ... thats your sign...




I bought my first BTC at exactly $111.00 

I was thrilled when it hit $1,111.00

Now $11,111.00

Nice organic growth.  Looks like Wall Street's gift of limp d*ck was only temporary.

It is a brick.

The reviews for this Corsair drive are terrible. One of them recommends getting a samsung instead.

https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820233160

Quote
Cons: It dies alot. I've had to RMA this drive 3 times. First time it died in 5 months, second time it died in 8 months, third time it died in 4 months.

I was running newest firmware and all the SSD win7 tweaks: trim, ahci, moved temp/page files, no sleep, etc

Corsair customer support is lacking. This last time I RMA'ed my drive they sent me back a refurbished drive WITHOUT the friggin mounting bracket that was originally included, so now I have no mounting bracket and a unreliable refurbished drive... for shame corsair... for same!!

Get a samsung

Other Thoughts: read the reviews on the samsung drives.. they are worth the extra money.

As to me, 5 years of flawless work is too little to claim SSDs are superiour in reliability. Most HDDs i was using (almost all, in fact) lasted more than 10 years, and just went retired due to upgrading the PC... On laptops HDDs seem to die much sooner than on desktops though.

Not sure why people in the West think no-moving-part is a synonim to reliability. Might come down to marketing hype... For example, nowadays SSDs can be good, but MMC flash storages used in many tablets, phones and SBCs, are dieing very fast if you write a lot. I had to move from MMC to HDD for my OrangePi (Raspberri-like device), so it could sustain constant writing load due to coin nodes I was running.

P.S. You told me the posting practice is the key, so I am practicing now Grin May attach train picture here if I find one...

The reason those MMC are failing is mostly because of its reduced capacity. That means many more rewrite cycles over its small free area than if it is a huge (in comparison) SSD.

My experience is the same about HDD's... I still have many HD's since early 90's that, last time I tried a few years ago, are still readeable. Only one completely gone and another one with read errors in some parts. Out of 30 or 40.

Seagate 3TB on the other hand......  Angry

Nowadays SSD's are pretty good and have great theoretical number of rewrite cycles... but it will take a couple of decades to make sure how good they are for long term storage.

P.S.: Never, ever, use an SSD or eMMC over 80% of its full capacity to avoid extreme wear and tear over the same area.

Was your oldest one a cheap brand, an expensive brand, or a mid range brand?

All Samsung.  The old one I'm assuming, as it is in a sealed Samsung laptop...

All my newest ones are Samsungs and a few Adatas.

My first real SSD was a 32GB Memoright SLC PATA 1.8" card with a ZIF connector that ran WinXP faster than any HDD at any speed. It's still running fine after more than a decade, AFAIK, although I haven't booted up the device in years to find out for sure. In other words, it became obsolete without failing.

A couple of years later SATA took over and SSDs went mainstream with consumer/retail SSDs hitting the market. Intel and OCZ led this early push. I replaced my 4 WD Raptor RAID-0 array with 4 OCZ Vertex SSDs only to have the whole storage subsystem bottlenecked by the southbridge. After moving up to PCI-e SSD arrays I re-purposed my old Vertex SSDs, using them to replace HDDs in friends' netbooks and notebooks. I never heard of one failing.

I haven't booted from a HDD in over 10 years and I still have never had an SSD fail. My elderly main desktop PC still boots from an ancient OCZ Revodrive3x2 PCI-e card without any problems. My newest SSD is a 500GB Samsung 960EVO M.2 NVMe SSD in my newest laptop. It rocks.

"Friends don't let friends HDD." Indeed.
